Askher’s frontwoman Lori Girard brings a style all her own, with thought-provoking lyrics, raw and powerful vocals, and a contagious energy. Think Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Bruce Springsteen, and The Killers. Lori is backed by talented London musicians Ryan Cruickshank (bass), Joe Piotrowski (guitar), and Chad Kentner(drums). This energetic, hard working, 3-year-old band released their first album in March of 2017. The multi layered album: “Favourite Things” is a mix of genres offering an edgy insight into our daily human experience. Jennifer Reid added her sultry vocals on several tracks of Askher’s album and she’s here for tonight’s performance. Askher takes us on a rock and roll journey of Lori’s observations and personal discovery, adding humour, candor and a willingness to express herself with no reservations. In addition to fronting the band, Lori is an outspoken LGBTQ advocate and a full time high school teacher and mom.
